In brief: Still get treatments

If proved to be poor, and have no financial resources, medicaid and lots of charitable medical facilities are always available, this is what the health care reform is about, every one will have health care insurance, and prevent people to put money in the mat and place the burden on the health care system, virtual destruction of hospitals are due uninsured people walking in with grave problems.

In brief: SCHIP

Each state has provision for healthcare for children under chip, children's health insurance program, supported by medicaid.
Contacting the state office of health would be a starting point for the search for treatment.

In brief: Still treat

Hospitals will treat children with cancer regardless of the inability to pay.
Additionally, social workers are great at finding insurance for families of children with cancer. Bottom line: get to a doctor, even an emergency room, and don't worry about the costs.
